Following on from my summer residency at the New Art Exchange in Nottingham I'll be reconnecting to the people and places I built links with during my time spent exploring the allotment sites in the city through a seed sharing event, which is open to anyone.

I've been invited by Delfina Foundation to present a talk at the Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery.
Mutation / Resilience is a day-long gathering reflecting on speculative, transdisciplinary practices that deal with food, land and communing, to speculate about how to contribute to building resilient communities. The gathering brings together associates from Delfina Foundation’s Politics of Food and Nottingham Contemporary’s Emergency & Emergence investigating the ways in which forms of life deviate and create new life forms.
Presentations by Rebecca Beinart, David Blandy, Beth Kettel, Maya Marshak, Theo Reeves-Evison, Mita Solanky

Leicester Society of Artists’ annual exhibition has long been a highlight of the Leicester arts calendar, showcasing creative talent from across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland since 1881. LSA members are all local artists and makers, some of international acclaim, who collaborate to bring an exhibition that continues to push the boundaries of achievement and entertainment value, with consistently high-quality submissions. There is a diverse range of media and styles, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, textiles, ceramics, and glass and most works are available to purchase.
This year sees the re-introduction of the LSA Student Award …but with a difference. Responding to the museum’s ‘Kampala to Leicester’ permanent exhibition students were asked for their interpretation of the refugee crisis. In conjunction with the city of sanctuary the student participated in a workshop with asylum seekers based in Leicester to execute an artwork based on their winning proposal. The LSA Exhibition Curator Lis Naylor says, 'It is the aim of LSA to encourage and support emerging artists to transition from student to professional by providing this award.'

Issue 6 October - red hot
It's Autumn and Imminent 6 has arrived.
As the seasons turn red, we remember the heat of the summer months, wild fires and record temperatures, and welcome the coolness amongst the autumnal colours. Imminent 6 has a feeling of time passing, colours fading, changing light, and the knowledge embedded within the grains of a piece of wood or in the connections of an ecosystem.
Imminent 6 is printed in red, with images by Jo Dacombe and myself, and poetry by contributors from: Chris Turnbull, Rupert M Loydell, Andrew Taylor and Mark Goodwin.
The issue is available now from Jo Dacombe's shop page, and you can read more about it and the contributors on Jo's blog.
